    Janine, Janine, you are sooo talented. Yes, you should nearly have enough posts now to serve as material for your book, Photo Essays of Italy (working title : ). I can’t even choose favorite photos these days, so many incredible ones and they work so well together. Black and white with red tablecloths… are you playing at little? Really like that one, too. It is fascinating to me to see the tile roof being fixed, and the inside re-plastering (exquisite lighting and building)–construction as it is in Italy, all the extra care that must be needed. Take good care of your beautiful self and thank you for sharing your travels, ~ Lily

      Lily!!! What can I say…..you make it all worthwhile! Your sweet words are too generous. I have rarely loved doing anything more that just wandering in Italy and taking photos of life as it happens. The building where the men are plastering is soon to be an ex-basilica turned auditorium. It is sublime and I was so welcomed and made feel special by the lovely team working inside. They were working in such peace and with such dignity. You picked up on that and I’m not surprised…. You’re so like that!πŸ˜‰ Jxx

    Well done, always such a pleasure to follow you while you explore the streets of italy. Especially like the picture with the two men walking down the street, are they mailmen? Looking at the photo makes me wonder what they’re discussing and where they might be going. Looking forward to where you’ll take us nextπŸ™‚

      You are very welcome Matilda! Thank you for keeping me company. I love that you can read your own story into the shots. The two men are ‘vigili urbani’, local traffic police, giving out fines much of the time. Hopefully they weren’t talking about work! I doubt it, don’t you?πŸ˜‰

      Hello again Carla! Haha yes, well, let’s just say Italian Men and we’ll both be happy! Catching them at work isn’t always that easy, bless their cotton socks! I am super happy you liked the post, and to be included in your lovely links made my day! Have a brilliant week yourself. Keeping enjoying those long days and those long shadows. Jxx
